Super, Super Good! First of all, I found this recipe on the EatingWell site and came to see if it had been posted here. I was so glad to see Lvs2Cook already had it posted! I did make a few minor changes due to what I had on hand. I used 4 (15 oz) cans of black beans, meatless pepperoni (instead of the chorizo), only 1/2 cup dark rum, and used vegetable broth in place of chicken. I cooked in a 13x9" glass pan, covered for 30 minutes. Uncovered and cooked for an additional 45 minutes. The flavor is sensational and not at all soupy. Baked beans are suppose to be sweet and this recipe is sweet, but not overly sweet for our taste. The original recipe I found on EatingWell says this serves 16 (not the 8 servings stated in this post) which would definitely reflect in the nutritional facts given here. I will definitely make this again!! Thanks so much, Luvs2Cook!!
I made these for a Cinco de Mayo dinner. My friends were gracious and said they weren't bad - just different! They were a little too sweet for my taste. And I'm not sure what I did wrong (if anything) but I defintely didn't have a problem with them drying out during baking - in fact they were swimming in liquid!
